This is a hidden away gem, but very difficult to get to by public transportation. At the train station, which is not open, there is no sign for where to get the bus, and no info on Egeskov, which is about 2-3 km from the train station. We walked to the Castle, which is beautiful. The gardens are magnificent. At... More

A bit on the pricey side- especially considering the number of hours it is open. The castle was pretty on the outside. The hunting/game room was interesting and we liked Titania's Palace (huge dollhouse) but had trouble seeing all the great details and would have liked a lot more explanation. We enjoyed the Falk fire station museum, old cars/planes, and... More

Numerous gardens, mazes, museums (classic cars, planes, motorcycles, emergency vehicles), playgrounds, tree-top walking... and a picturesque castle. A great place for picnics and family fun for all ages.

We spent a couple days in Copenhagen before we hopped on a Baltic cruise and saw all the sights around Copenhagen. After the cruise we decided to spend 4 more days in Denmark exploring the country by car. We visited many castles/museums on Zealand but decided to venture further out and heard about Egeskov castle/museum/gardens. It's about 2 1/2 hr... More

The castle itself has a nice enough exhibition, but the gardens is whats the best to see in my... More
